BPA in the Media Again!

As staunch supporters of the anti-BPA campaign we were very pleased to see coverage in the British media last Friday of a new report linking BPA to breast cancer.

The Daily Mail and the BBC both featured articles about Professor Anna Soto, an expert in cancer development ar the University of Ulster, who has recently carried out research on BPA .

She is warning that BPA can trigger toxins which lead to cancer after discovering that foetal and neonatal exposure to the chemical increases the likelihood of development of malignant tumours later in life.

Professor Soto said:

I would call for a banning of the use of BPA giving the growing evidence and increasing concerns that research has shown.

The foetal and neonatal life are crucial for a child’s development and parents should consider the advantage of using BPA-free products.

The chemical has been banned or its use limited in Canada, France and Denmark and many US states. We are hoping that the UK government will sit up and take notice of the experts and take similar action against the use of BPA.
